Introduction to Computer Coding and Design Technologies

This course introduces students to two areas: computer coding and design technology .

In the semester of Computer Coding , students learn fundamental computer science concepts by creating programs to solve problems, interact with users, perform complicated calculations, and control robots.

Students should expect to code in a variety of languages and environments, such as:

  • Scratch
  • App Inventor (Android)
  • Lego Mindstorms (EV3)
  • Codea (Lua)

In the semester of Design Technology students will be exposed to a variety of problem solving design concepts in engineering, architecture, and woodcraft. Overall theme of this semester is to design, create and build.

Students should expect to use the following innovative design technologies:

  • Laser Cutters
  • 3D printers
  • CAD software
  • Power Tools
